Bau-Biology is about the study of healthy buildings and about the relationship between our bodies and our built environment. Coming over from Germany over 20 years ago, translated as “Building Biology”, this non-profit organization is dedicated to educating and informing those searching for healthy living practices. The Institute trains and certifies Bau-Biologie Environmental Consultants to practice the 25 Principles of healthy living spaces, which include indoor air quality, electro-magnetic fields, healthy building materials and furnishings in a holistic view with Mother Nature as the ultimate guide. When I found Bau-Biology I knew I had discovered an organization with the broadest perspective yet on sustainable healthy environmental living practices, not just what is ‘green’ but what is HEALTHY for human bodies AND the planet. After completing the certification program, I became one of the many Building Biologists across the continent performing assessments of homes and work places, using advanced meters and measuring equipment. We are not just talking about what is green and healthy, we are revealing actual health hazards and exposures in specific living spaces, making the invisible visible. With this valuable information people have choices. This non-profit organization is uniquely poised to assist and educate the public, provide in-depth training for aligned professional fields, and assist health care practitioners by doing ‘the house calls’ to find sources of potential health hazards and reduce exposures to adults and especially to children. I highly recommend the educational coursework, online classes, and many dedicated professional Building Biologists in the field, all working toward empowering the general public with knowledge to improve our buildings, our homes, our communities and our health.
